Sorry, I was saying that I wanted the Evolv ATX for the 3x120mm capabilities in the front until I learned that the Pro M's ODD cage could be removed for the same capabilities. That and the better airflow capabilities
. When I was first researching cases, I didn't realize they were the same inner chassis either

Come on man, don't play with my weak brain like this.
Yeah, they are both quite low pressure, especially at low speed. F140SP is 1.33mm H2O compared to R2's 0.84mm H2O (0.54 @ 800rpm) or Aeroshark's 1.07mmH2O (0.3mm H2O @ 800rpm). Better fans with sutomatic speed control so they cycle with coolers and you will be set.

It's not fully behind the ODD slot or away from the side vents, but it's enough so that it's not getting as much air as possible. Thoughts on that approach? It'll determine weather I buy 3x120SPs or 2x140SPs
Silly doyll, drugs are for kids....
But I bolded it for you
. I'm just concerns that top 120mm would be somewhat of a waste. I positioned both of my 140s for some airflow to the bottom, and probably 75% of the fan surface area for airflow to my GPUs and CPU cooler. (You can click on the rig 'Lydia' in my sig)
